January 17th Kid Inventors Day

Created by Lee Ward, to promote her book; “101 Ways to Bug Your Parents, 101 Ways to Bug Your Teacher, 101 Ways to Bug Your Friends and Enemies”. She claims that 500,000 kids a year invent something that may, or may not, make it to the mainstream. She picked today because it’s Benjamin Franklin’s birthday., one of the first children inventors on record when he invented swim fins at 12 years of age. It’s been a bizarre holiday since 2005.
